Hard vs soft skills
Over the years, I have acquired technical skills through a combination of formal education and self-directed learning. But beyond technical skills, I have developed strong analytical and communication skills through diverse experiences. Throughout my career, I have found that my interest in technology is a significant strength that helps me identify areas for improvement and find creative solutions to problems. I approach everything with a critical eye and a relentless drive to make things better. For instance, I am not afraid to provide detailed feedback to companies when I feel their products or services could be improved. I once sent a three-page email to Google Smart Home, detailing how their service could be more efficient for my sixty smart devices. Another time, I provided thorough customer feedback to a printer leasing company regarding automating their services, and my efforts were rewarded with a Bose speaker. While some might see my obsession with efficiency and avoiding wasted resources as borderline OCD, I believe it is this mindset that has contributed to many of my successful problem-solving endeavors throughout my career.
My foray into data science began less than two years ago, as I sought ways to better utilize my Excel spreadsheets. While I had toyed with learning Python out of curiosity, my career had provided ample challenge and excitement, and I didn't prioritize it. However, the pandemic brought new challenges, and I found myself turning to statistical analysis tools such as correlation and causality to drive improvements for Private Labels at Ahlsell Norge AS. Despite my reputation for providing valuable improvement advice and education to our 700-person sales team, I soon realized that my communication skills and Excel proficiency were insufficient for the high-level changes I wanted to make. That's when I recognized that what I was doing was data science. I could either accept my limitations or take action to improve my skills. After researching available programs, I ultimately chose Noroff as my educational institution. I was impressed with the depth and relevance of their curriculum, especially considering how rare bachelor's or equivalent Applied Data Science programs are.
